Default Re: Last minute bookings...

Chuck has given you the best advice on this. Remember that the possibility of a lower cruise price may well be offset and then some by booking last minute air! Now for those of us who live close to a port sometimes we can get a great last minute deal from a TA that we have managed to gvet on their "A" list. My local agent once called me on a Monday and asked if I could go Sat for a 5 day at $250pp with the third just $59 and that included all port and taxes. (This was well before 9/11 and considered an unreal pricing BTW) Since then and in the last year we have on more than one occasion had less than a couple weeks notice with one time being booked on Wed, sailed on Fri
